TBT Trials – Lawyer No. 4

I wish i could have made the announcement earlier but i have been so tied up with the activism work that it is almost impossible to blog. At the rate i am going, i will be announcing old news on my blog perpetually.

On 4th September 2008, we appeared before District Judge Liew Thiam Leng in Court 24, Subordinate Courts.

Mr. Francis Ow from Archilex Law Corporation now appears for SDP Vice Chairman Mr. Francis Yong.

Trial dates are fixed for the 18 + 1 protestors on 23rd October 2008 till 7th November 2008 at Court No. 5.

Interestingly, this is the first set of trial dates for the latest protest. The trial dates for the Freedom walk in September 2007 and World Bank – IMF in September 2006 have yet to be set.

Interestingly, the prosecution for the World Bank- IMF and and Freedom Walk commenced only after the administration took the decision to charge the protestors for the March 15 2008 Tak Boleh Tahan protest.

It looks like the tak boleh tahan campaign really made them tak boleh tahan. ūüôā

Till 23rd October 2008, i would need to finalise some legal matters as well as to get the 3 more lawyers to give their confirmation soon – no prizes for guessing who would have to take time to do this.

Lets hope this will be in place before i scream “tak boleh tahan!”.
